With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

2 Views of Boston
Chicago Rand McNally & Co. Box Very Good 
An unusual viewbook schraubtaler, or coin/medal shaped case housing within a leporello of coin-shaped cameo illustrations, this one made to look like a Liberty silver dollar and within containing 18 views, including the Old State House, the State House, the Brewer Fountain, the Boston Common, the Masonic Temple, Faneuil Hall, the Public Library, the Cultural and Studio Buildings, the Athenaeum Building, Beacon Street, the Park Street Church, the South Church, the Old Elm, City Hall, the new Post Office, the Custom House, the Old North Church, the Public Garden, the Hamolton Statue, and the Bunker Hill Monument. Scarce, with no copies found on OCLC First Search. N.d., circa 1890. 45 mm diameter. But referred to in Pressler, Schraubtaler und Steckmedaillen as Item 991. With the original box, which measures 52 mm across. Condition: outside of coin has a few light scratches and other signs of light wear, but overall very well preserved. Within, the views are in fine condition. The box is missing one side edge to its lid, and the paper pastedown on the lid has soiling. Given the improbability of the box's survival, the box is in remarkable condition.
